Since I learned how to make broccoli fritters, I have been on a fritter frenzy! Figuring out what else to fritter, I came across a banana fritter recipe on Martha Stewart’s website, and you know I can’t say, “no” to Martha Stewart.
6 ripe bananas
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
3 Tbs vegetable oil
Makes about 10 two inch diameter fritters.
Mash the bananas in a large bowl. I like my fritters with a bit of texture so I did not over mash. Mix in the eggs, then the flour.
Heat the oil in a large skillet to medium heat. When the oil is hot (put the end of a wooden spoon handle in the oil and if there are tiny bubbles, it is hot enough), spoon large tablespoons of the mixture in the pan. Flip with a spatula when it is golden brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Cook the other side until it is also golden brown, about 3 minutes.
Top with ice cream, honey, cinnamon sugar, or eat all by itself. It is great for breakfast or desserts (or any other time in between).
This is quite possibly the easiest fritter recipe, and yet it tastes so good! You can even try it as a replacement for pancakes. Enjoy!
